Monday/ tea from Hong Kong

I tried the tea this morning from the Ying Kee Tea House in Hong Kong but it just doesn’t taste the way I expected it to.  Much earthier and some other flavors my untrained palate cannot identify.   I followed the instructions of putting tea in the pot, pour boiling water over it, swill it quickly and immediately pour off the water (it washes the tea leaves); then refill the pot and let it steep for 3 minutes.    So .. I will try it again a few times and see if I get used to it.
